The Vegan Week That Was: vegan vegetarian dog food, ice skater begrudgingly ditches fur, adopt orange tabbies!, debit card for animals, food fight! coupon, new Barnivore app

Murry, 10, is up for adoption at NYACC.

Murry, 10, is up for adoption at NYACC.

  • The Humane Society of the United States will sell organic vegan vegetarian dog food, called Humane Choice. Let’s hope they kick Purina’s ass to next Tuesday! Also, cat food next, pls!
  • The Superbowl happened; the underdog won; and Roberto Martin and Tal Ronnen prepared for Ellen yummy vegan nachos, pot pie, stew, and more. Rah, rah, rah!
  • Olympic ice skater Johnny Weir is going to don fake fur rather than real fur over his manitard because some muddling vegans tried to take the focus off his triple axel for a second to talk about his anally-electrocuted outfit, and he just CANNOT BE DISTRACTED FROM WHAT’S IMPORTANT. Weir gets what’s wrong with fur, he told the AP, “but it’s not something that’s the number-one priority in my life. There are humans dying every day. … Look at what just happened in Haiti.” LOOK OVER THERE! LOOK OVER THERE!
  • You know things are bad when people are giving up their orange tabbies. Animal Care & Control of New York City is apparently full of them. If you have room for a furry one at home, maybe consider these guys?
  • How about this: a slice of your debit transaction fees could support animals instead of banks. In Defense of Animals launched a debit card that will direct a portion of transaction fees to IDA, which they will use to fund “our chimpanzee sanctuary in Cameroon, Africa; our veterinary clinics and ambulance service for the thousands of street animals of Mumbai, India; and for our investigative and sanctuary work in rural Mississippi,” IDA founder and President Elliot M. Katz said. For use wherever Mastercard is accepted. No details yet on how to get one, but I’ll update if I find out.
  • Food Fight! Vegan Grocery needs our $$ to help cover their taxes. They’re offering a 5-percent discount with code “FUTAXES10″ (heh) good through Monday, 2/15. Time to stock up on chocolates and Ricemellow, MMMMHMMM.
  • New iPhone app from the vegan boozemeisters at Barnivore. Search for “vegan is easy” in the iTunes store. Update (2/15): Per Jason Doucette’s comment below, the app was not made by Barnivore, but it uses data from Barnivore.

Well, there you have it — the week that was. Did we miss anything? Let us know!

Correction (2/16): HSUS’s new dog food contains supplements that they say might come from animal sources. Drat.

    (Psst. The Humane Choice dog food isn’t vegan. Close, but no cigar.)

    Which Humane Choice ingredients aren’t vegan? (I’d copy the list here but it’s in an image and I don’t feel like retyping it.) I guess one (or more) of the supplements is from an animal source?

    Hey Val,

    You’re right; my bad! I just updated the headline. I was going to include a note about a new vegan makeup retailer, but I’m not sure yet that they’re 100 percent vegan. When I do, though, there will be a post.

    Thanks for mentioning Barnivore! Just to be clear and give credit where credit is due, Barnivore.com didn’t make the iPhone app – we provide the data to anyone who wants to use it, and some amazing things are starting to happen!

    Matthew Feinberg is the author of Vegan Is Easy, and he’s got an exciting update in the works. Also, before that came out, Heather Jensen release “Is Your Beer Vegan?”, “Is Your Wine Vegan?”, and “Is Your Liquor Vegan?”, all of which use Barnivore data to provide updates, but are written and maintained by the developers.

    In hindsight, our tweet was a little misleading, and we apologize for any confusion! The idea was that the main website would be updated with full information on the apps and where they came from but that was delayed a week – this will be corrected over the next few days.

    In the meantime, I hope everyone who wants to enjoys a nice vegan drink or two – it’s getting easier than ever!

    Thanks Sam! I actually have been searching for some decently-priced cosmetic lines that are both vegan and phthalate-free. It’s harder than I thought; if you want animal-free, you have to go for synthetics, but many of them contain cancer-causing chemicals. I’ve just sent away to http://www.christopherdrummond.com for samples of his vegan, phthalate-free foundation. I’ll let you know how it is if you’d like. Val

    Jason (Das) — Yeah, it’s the supplements. In their FAQ they mention that the vitamin A, B12, and D3 may be animal derived. Of course, it’s not easy to find SINCE THEIR ENTIRE DAMN SITE IS AN IMAGE rather than text…
